Unformatted text preview: -Average and Worst: O(n^2). This can be improved when the elements are not too far from their correct positions. -Usually performs more poorly than other 0(n^2) sorts. Merge Sort:-Average and Worst Case: O(nlog(n))-Best case usually takes about half the amount of iterations as the worst case. Benjamin Smith Alex Packard Selection Sort:-O(n^2) -Generally faster than bubble sort but slower than insertion sort. Insertion Sort:-Best Case: O(n). Occurs when the list is already sorted.-Average Case: O(n^2). Faster when list is almost sorted.-Worst Case: O(n^2). Occurs when list is in reverse order.-Generally faster than selection sort. Quick Sort:-Average Case: O(nlog(n))-Worst Case: O(n^2) Mystery Sorts:-We will research other sorting algorithms whose performance seems to be similar to the mystery sorts and decide which algorithm matches each sort....
